I doubt Wisconsin will be favored to win this game. I think the game will be an impressive show of running and stopping the run, with Wisconsin coming out on top in the end with an upset victory.
Those were our last 3 games against them by the way.
Indiana plays over their heads for the first part of their games with us but almost always ends up getting beat soundly. I think the 14 is way too little points. Take the Bucks, we win by 21 or more.
“Fields still has plenty to prove. I'm not 100% he's the real deal.”
Wow. What game were you watching? He throws the ball a long ways without effort, outruns 11 guys when he needs to, scores 5 touchdowns in his first start out of high school, all while playing for a team where he is fairly new. He just set a record for his performance.
Seems most units appear strong. Not thinking about any of them but the linebackers. Still concerned about how slow they looked last year. I know all about the new coaches, new linebacker assignments, all that stuff, but that doesn't make a kid run faster. If you can’t spin em like Darron Lee or Ryan Shazier, no coaching is going to help you. I’m still concerned. Rest of the team looks tremendous. Go Bucks!
I doubt you win the Big10 east with 3 losses.
Wait, of course he won’t say Michigan on live TV. He has a new name for them as I recall.
”You never lose to those pricks, never.”
Hopefully he will use this new name.
This stuff seems asinine. Let’s hand out the awards after the season.
All I can say, is he just became my favorite player.
It’s simple. Tatgate was huge because OSU is the giant, the legend, the one team that people hate because they are not all these things. And they have had a clean image so any hint of impropriety is instant click bait. Schools that are thought of as small (Akron), or already deemed crooked (Miami, LSU) don’t bring the shock effect with a story like Tatgate and hence don’t attract strong interest. No sense fretting over it. Just keep beating Michigan and life is always good.
Something that wasn’t mentioned in this article was the fact that there are very few top rated true running back’s coming out of the Midwest. Todd Sibley from Hoban was the only one I can find in the last four years that came out of Ohio. Most of the highschoolers stick around their home state and it seems hard to get them to leave to come to Ohio. Most stay in their state, or head to a neighboring one. This is a cool website that lists every high schooler in their rankings of all purpose back or running back, where they’re from, where they went. Sheds a lot of light on what has been going on. Hard to blame coach Alford, seems like he gets as many running backs as everybody else does in the Midwest.
I think what I see is a man who’s trying to help another person with an extreme effort. Urban really cared and wanted to help Zak. I like the comments about the skinny wide receivers. We all knew there was an issue back then, didn’t know it was because of skinny receivers, LOL.
He immediately gets number 97 when he arrives on campus.
Just logged in from Raleigh to say double crap! But, we won the last Nat Champ without a 5 star RB and don’t need one to win the next one.
Day is killing it. My first thought is, he is on fire and is really out to prove himself, coming out of the shadow of the great UFM. My second thought is, who in the %#!# would commit to Itchigam after seeing the army Day is assembling?
Like what’s happening so far. Nice job coach. Day seems less intimidating than UFM, I think we will see great recruiting while he is the HC.
A hunger like his first year, and body of a junior, he could break records easily this year. His physic looks like Mike Weber’s did entering his junior year, scary and amazing all at the same time. I’ve seen pictures of his upper torso lately and the best way I can describe it is, it looks like someone photo shopped the Incredible Hulk with JK’s head on it. He obviously has put the work in. Really looking forward to him getting the ball often this year and plowing little defensive backs over on the way to the end zone.
But, the jump cut is Braxton Miller’s to own. He did it originally and I’m pretty sure he broke more than a couple of opponents ankles doing it.
Nice article. Never knew his history. Back surgery seems pretty serious to me as well. Hopefully he gets it done this season on the field and gets his paycheck from the league next year.
I think Justin has a slow delivery on the ball. He likes to wind up before letting it go. There will be less time in the pocket to do that now, Coach Day surely sees it if someone like me can and probably has it fixed already. Justin came to the right school to get coached into a better QB. I can’t wait to see how he looks after about a half season of training and coaching. Looking forward to seeing the ball in the air for 80 yds. I remember Pryor winging the ball that distance and my adrenaline levels flying with it.
Breakfast menu being planned.
The TTUN - 7 fresh laid eggs,
Bosa’s ran until the whistle, no matter if they were playing 1 hand touch or heading to the bathroom. They pursued every play and were impossible to keep blocked.
Hopefully he can develop the tenacity that Joey and Nick naturally had. They never stopped pursuit on any play ever. I watched 97 at the Spring Game and didn’t see that. With his size and “want to be great” attitude he could bring back some memories for all of us if he acquires it.
Dolphins have been fishing for Buckeyes and they’ve landed a few.
You are in the minority. I’m trying to find a way to erase it completely from my phone so none of my friends can ever find out I watched it.
I think Weber’s injuries and his sharing time in the backfield because he wasn’t the best talent on the team when it was his turn to take that role, hurt his draft position. Time will tell if he has the talent to play in the NFL. He definitely has the heart. Wish him the best.
